|Hi, I ain't no doctor but it is to do with your sinuses and a difference in pressure between your inner and outer ear I think.
I used to get blocked ears very easily because of this but now I sometimes have bad sinuses in my nose (when it feels blocked but nothing is there...) and when you open your mouth you here a popping/cracking noise that sounds like two bones hitting each other. Sometimes it feels like your ears are blocked when they are in fact not.
Basically when you move your jaw it can alter the pressure in your inner ear and that is what causes the sound.
I used to have the problem solved by having a basic sinus nasal spray that is often used to treat symptoms of hay fever or allergies etc This should at least help the problem for you.
My jaw popping thing only developed recently (it used to just crack very loudly once in a while and then disappear for ages).. i stopped taking the nasal spray for a while because things got better. But the one I've just been prescribed isn't working as well as a different one i had before...
My doctor was also lousy and constantly said i must be allergic to something. But that is rubbish because I never get a runny nose or sneeze or am allergic to anything!

|your surgeon could tell you more. it stated that my discs were out of place with a lot of other things wrong--at surgery none of that was corect|
